Grants to Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for programs that benefit disadvantaged populations. Funding is intended for projects that address educational inequities and promote year-long learning. Eligible programs address social justice concerns within the District of Columbia and surrounding counties in Virginia and Maryland, with priority given to proposals that include, but may not be limited to underserved wards.

Priority Theme: Education Achievement Gap: Programs that seek to address in a concrete and measurable manner the persistent education achievement disparities affecting low-income communities and communities of color, which have been exacerbated by the Coronavirus pandemic. The achievement gap is not a new problem in education; however, recent reports suggest that due to COVID-19, students are at risk for significant learning loss.

The target population for the grant is youth between 5-18 years old enrolled in elementary school, middle school, high-school, or GED (General Educational Development) or not in education, employment, or training (NEET) living in underserved, low-income communities.

Proposals should include holistic interventions encompassing inclusive community engagement, education/training, advocacy, and support services with clear links to addressing long-standing gaps in American education for students of color and high-poverty communities.

For additional technical criteria, see:

Proposals are encouraged to include ways for HTCC parishioners to become engaged through volunteer opportunities, as well as potential ways of fostering a long-term relationship between the implementing organization and the parish.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant size will range from $50,000 to $100,000. Depending on the scope of the proposals received, the Funding Source also reserves the option of making smaller awards to more than one organization.

Term of Contract:

The proposals’ duration will be from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. Please note, in certain cases, HTCC has granted smaller continuation grants to large grant proposals. This second, continuation grant would be made based on an assessment of progress achieved by the end of year 1, and HTCC’s value add in providing subsequent complementary funding. HTCC reserves the right to provide continuation grants.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility for grants is open to all not-for-profit organizations based in the District of Columbia or in nearby surrounding counties located in Virginia and Maryland.

Capital projects are not eligible.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for submissions is February 26, 2021

Grants are awarded each spring after parishioners on the social justice committee review proposals and make recommendations to the pastor. Both selected and non-selected applicants will be notified of the final decision around the end of May 2021, if not sooner.
